Pittsburgh

4.3

City of Bridges

Known primarily for its steel-related heritage and 446 bridges, Pittsburgh sits at the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers, which meet to form the Ohio River. Pittsburgh's main appeal lies in its unusual city design, which combines bridges, steep hills, and broad rivers to form one of the most naturally scenic urban areas in the country. Classic itineraries here usually include a tour of the most popular attractions, Mount Washington and both the Duquesne and Monongahela Inclines. Named for the small strip of land a half-mile wide that it sits on, the Strip District downtown represents a revitalized area of the bygone manufacturing mecca, featuring produce stands, fresh meats, ethnic grocers, and sidewalk stands in the shadow of contemporary skyscrapers. The city is still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists, and it offers savvy visitors on vacation a chance to explore a hodge-podge of diverse neighborhoods, each with its own ethnic and architectural heritage. To discover the spirit of this true sports town, join the locals for a drink at one of many beer halls around the city.

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
